Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

Hi Andrew

Just a superb demo.. Really great and I have learned quite a bit from reading this posting..

One thing I would ask of you however is if you could do a thread on Measuring.. and what technique you use and application etc on measuring.. Thats something that I really lack for life painting.. I have only done a couple and have backed off due to my measuring being so terrible..

I would like to have a look at your method if possible..

Thanks so much for doing this demo.. Very nice of you..

Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

Hello Weezy.
Thanks for your kind words and suggestions. I have been thinking for some time now of writing an art instruction book. I realise there are so many great books out there already but I always think there is room for another point of view or perhaps a fresh way of looking at some of the same old information.

I am also hoping to start some workshops and do a little teaching when I return full time to Canada. Between workshops and wet canvas this a great way to get some feedback and encouragement from good folks like yourself. I will consolidate some of the information and put it all together in an easy to read... or easy to watch form in the near future.

On that note...
Johnnie ....I will post a thread soon on "How I measure" when I'm drawing or painting.
Generally this is one of the least used and most valuable tools an artist can use to make sure his drawing and proportions are absolutely accurate!

There are some good instructions in the Andrew Loomis book .. "figure drawing for all its worth" Loomis calls this the visual survey procedure.
This is an excellent way to measure but I find many art students have difficulty grasping it right away.

I hope the way I use will help others the way it helps me.

More later.... Cheers.... Andrew Judd
